Publisher's Summary

Former cavalryman Quill McKenna takes pride in protecting the most powerful man in Stonechurch, Colorado: Mr. Ramsey Stonechurch himself. But the mine owner has enemies, and after several threats on his life, mines, and family, Quill decides to hire someone to help guard the boss' daughter. Only problem is the uncontrollable attraction he feels toward the fiery-haired woman who takes the job.
Calico Nash has more knowledge of scouting and shooting than cross-stitching, but she agrees to pose as Ann's private tutor while protecting her. But between her growing attraction to Quill and the escalating threats against the Stonechurches, Calico will soon have a choice to make - hang on to her hard-won independence or put her faith in Quill to create the kind of happy ending she never imagined....

A Good One!

Interesting characters make "This Gun For Hire" a keeper.

The beginning setting is in the salon of a house of ill repute where Quill McKenna stops to get a drink and is mesmerized by a dark haired 'lady of the night' who seems to be waiting for someone as her eyes take in the room, paying him no attention. One of the 'girls' approaches Quill and asks his name. He says, Quill McKenna. She says, what kind of name is Quill? He says, "mine"! (it loses something in the telling, but the exchange made me chuckle) Then a big man with an air of danger about him comes in; the man 'she' was waiting for. A hush falls across the room as the big man takes her upstairs. Quill fears for the dark haired girl and goes up after them. Events following Quill's ascension to the girls room where he hears a commotion and knocks on the girl's door had me laughing out loud.

Some parts move a little slow, but for the most part it keeps the listener engaged wondering who is behind the attempts on Quill's employers life and the accidents befalling his daughter.

Tom Zingarelli has a nice speaking voice and does women voices well. I enjoyed his performance.

This Gun For Hire has humor, mystery and romance--an entertaining listen.

Needed female voice

Written really well but needed a female voice for Calico. She sounded like an old woman. Story was really good though
